Labelcraft Products develops first 100 per cent recyclable release liner
Labelcraft Products is proud to debut its new eco-friendly release liner, the Recyclable EnviroLiner. The Recyclable EnviroLiner is the first liner of its kind and the release design is made of 100 per cent recycled material, which can be recycled in local facilities.
The Recyclable EnviroLiner can be used in a variety of face stocks including films, gloss, thermal transfer, EDP and direct thermal. Labelcraft is currently in discussions with global label stock manufacturers to produce this new product.
Traditionally, release liners have been unrecyclable because they are coated in large amounts of silicone. However, after many years of research and development Labelcraft has overcome this issue. The Recyclable EnviroLiner is made of 100 per cent recycled paper and can be recycled in local recycling facilities. The product allows converters to use standard presses and customers to use standard printers.
The Recyclable EnviroLiner is a testament to Labelcraft’s total commitment to sustainability and environmental preservation. While the label industry has traditionally not been a leader in sustainability, the Recyclable EnviroLiner is a critical turning point. In North America it is estimated that nearly 1,200,000 tons of liners are dumped into landfills annually. The Recyclable EnviroLiner is the first product that will allow suppliers and customers to work towards 100 per cent landfill free facilities.
